This past weekend, the Newtown Athletic Club hosted the Summit Send-off, a pep rally in honor of the Emeralds and Sapphires qualifying for Summit. Summit is the most prestigious championship for levels 1 through 4. It is located in Walt Disney World and only 10% of teams who try for bids get them. This is a huge accomplishment for the Emeralds and Sapphires and a pep rally was a great way to celebrate and to get them pumped and prepped to do their best!
At the pep rally all of our teams, parents and members of the club enjoyed some yummy Disney themed treats, raffle prizes and the company of Minnie and Mickey mouse. Two of our teams, the Tiny Sparkles and Shining Starz had brought their cheer season to an end by performing in front of everyone attending.
With the help of the coaches and team moms, we we’re able to pull together a pep rally full of fun for all! Among the assortment of Disney treats, raffle prizes and Minnie and Mickey, we also had a cotton candy machine, a projector looping videos of the Rock Starz performances this season and displays of cheer camp and tryout information. Not to mention, all of our teams that couldn’t help but stunt and tumble on the mats that were out!
Following the Summit Send-off, all of our teams headed over to the NAC Sports Training Center to watch the live feed of Coach Scott and Coach Kelly perform at WORLDS. To continue the fun, we then had free open tumbling and then made Summit themed arts and crafts to get even more pumped for the week ahead!
With Summit being less than a week away, we’d like to wish both the Emeralds and Sapphires the best of luck! Your hard work and dedication earned you a spot at Summit and we couldn’t be more proud!
